I’d like to give a little give a little breakdown on the popular Nigerian Aso ebi. The Aso ebi is translated as the cloth of the family, which is used to refer to the outfits made from matching fabric and pattern worn by family members only. Although it now applies to anyone who can afford one or would like to wear one at a wedding ceremony or social event to denote unity, support, and represent sides of the family. Besides, Aso ebi fabrics are typically of Ankara or Lace material for the outfit with the occasional head tie known as the “gele” associated with it.
On the contrary, the Aso-ebi phenomena is not strictly a Nigerian thing but applies to many tribes and countries in Africa with the subtle difference in the name. A lot of us personally have no problem with Aso ebi, but some of us have a problem with the price hike associated with it, the forcing of Aso ebi into people’s hands, and segregation of Aso ebi wearers from non-wearers, among others. We know how Nigerians make more money with these fabrics even when it’s so glaring that the prices are outrageous.
Well, despite all these, the trend is not stopping anytime soon. The Aso ebi is growing in lips and bounds. The Owambe has latest Aso ebi styles emerging day after day; Parties come and go, people still rock that which they have made over the years because sometimes, these styles are all about revamping.
